This Saturday, November 11th, your Plymouth Public Library is celebrating the Grand Re-Opening of the South End.
The administration and staff are excited to unveil the amazing new design and incredible new features along with a celebration including snacks, fun photo opportunities, and more.
The event begins Saturday at 8:15 a.m. and culminates with a ribbon cutting at 8:45. The community is invited to join the staff at the south entrance of the Plymouth Public Library for the festivities and stay to discover everything taking place in the next chapter at Plymouth Public Library!
The $5 million renovation project was divided into three phases, the roof and HVAC portion, which was completed earlier this year, the south end which is now complete, and the north end which will begin any day. Steven Buras, Director of the Plymouth Public Library indicated that most of the renovation stems from the structural need to address roof problems, skylights, and issues with the HVAC systems, but the project is an entire library building reno. He noted that the library board wanted to create a forward-thinking library with improved technology and program offerings.
Brandon Richie, Communication Specialist for the Plymouth Library said, “Some of the features are first and foremost the overall design which points toward the modern but contains connections to our rich history. The fireplace area with comfortable seating, new study nooks, multiple meeting rooms fitted for digital media use, a revamped computer lab with study/work counter for those patrons who do either schoolwork or business, a new design and layout to give way to more natural lighting, and an all-new circulation desk and check-out area designed for better flow and traffic of patrons.” Richie said the new spacious floor plan and layout make finding and selecting your desired choice of literature more comfortable and less time-consuming.
The Plymouth Library has been putting money back for many years planning for their next capital improvement project. The entire project is being paid for with cash on hand.
